Re: Removing junk .swp files
- Assuming you have the following in your .vimrc:
set directory=$HOME/.vim/swapYou can easily use find and metadata from the file system to remove files that have not been accessed in more than 30 days:On May 8, 2013, at 10:05 AM, Gary Johnson <garyjohn@...> wrote:

You could setup a tmp directory for where swp files are stores.
If you have swp files littered about, run this command to
recursively find and delete them:
find . -type d -name .swp | xargs rm -rf
I don't recommend this, because like George Dinwiddie says, it
doesn't check to see if any swap files are in use, but this is a
more efficient command:
find ~ -type f -name \*.swp -delete
Also, not all swap files end in .swp. If Vim needs to create a swap
file and one ending in .swp already exists, Vim will use the
extension .swo for the new one and .swn after that. I think it just
continues backwards through the alphabet. So using something like
would be more thorough.
